Meanwhile, Brighton ‘keeper Mat Ryan (No 2) almost topped the chart after making seven saves in a courageous 1-0 win against Wolves to keep his third successive clean sheet.

Last week’s table-topper Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang (No 3) appeared to have scored Arsenal’s winner at Crystal Palace before Luka Milivojevic (No 60) converted his second penalty of the game in the 83rd minute.

Chelsea thrashed Burnley 4-0 at Turf Moor, with man of the match Ross Barkley assisting Alvaro Morata’s opener and scoring his side’s second before teeing up Willian (No 10).

Riyad Mahrez (No 6) scored the winner during Manchester City’s 1-0 win at Tottenham, with Fernandinho (No 9) topping the stats for duels and a raft of defensive stats and Ederson (No 11) keeping with seventh clean sheet this term.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah (No 8) broke the deadlock and assisted two more goals during Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Cardiff to maintain his ascent up the chart.
